One of my favorite searches in DEStreaming is “video yearbook”. Have you tried it? There are 89 results (including quizzes) for each year in history from 1931 to the present that include images, articles, sound files and video clips. Excellent primary-source archival footage depicts actual events as they happened. What would your students put together to document the events of 2008-2009? What tools would they use? How do you encourage collaboration and publication? Please share your projects. Your weblinks, blogs, podcasts about this historic event can easily be listed here.
The “butterfly ballot” and “hanging chads.”. IRC. 2005.
